Largest Radio Flyer Wagon
Located in Spokane s Riverfront Park, this giant wagon is the work of artist Ken Spiering, commissioned by the Jr. League of Spokane. According to an article from Washington s Outer Limits, ... artist Ken Spiering s ideas for a bronze sculpture had dried up he knew it the instant he drew a sketch of a child urinating in a pond.
So, after six weeks of struggling to devise the perfect piece of interactive public art, he gave in. He quit.
But just days before the submission deadline, Spiering had another vision. This time, the child was pulling a red wagon. That s it, he said to himself. A big red wagon. What could be a better symbol of childhood? He quickly devised a plan and submitted it.
